BARRY FULLER picked up Septem­ber’s Gilling­ham player-of-the-month award on Satur­day. The right-back polled 40 per cent of the votes on the Kent Mes­sen­ger Group’s web­site, ken­ton­line. Fuller helped Gilling­ham keep a clean sheet in the 5-0 win against More­cambe and man­ager Mark Stim­son was full of praise for his newly-ap­pointed cap­tain. He said: “Simeon Jack­son got man-of-the-match and I think Barry Fuller was the next near­est to it. Ev­ery­thing he did was fan­tas­tic. “He’s a com­peti­tor. You are ei­ther the best player or the best com­peti­tor, and he is cer­tainly that. “When you win or lose you learn a lot about peo­ple. His re­ac­tion in the chang­ing room was bril­liant and even be­fore the game he called the hud­dle him­self. That was noth­ing to do with me. It shows what he is about.” The Ash­ford man has just been ap­pointed as Gills skip­per.
